The entire Paramount/Constitution Films series is PD. That's:

Bulldog Drummond Escapes (1937) Ray Milland
Bulldog Drummond Comes Back (1937) John Howard
Bulldog Drummond's Revenge (1937) John Howard
Bulldog Drummond's Peril (1938) John Howard
Bulldog Drummond in Africa (1938) John Howard
Arrest Bulldog Drummond (1939) John Howard
Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police (1939) John Howard
Bulldog Drummond's Bride (1939) John Howard

There is also a one off Republic production Bulldog Drummond at Bay (1937), with John Lodge, that's PD.

One episode of Douglas Fairbanks Theatre featuring Bulldog Drummond. It was a pilot for a series that wasn't picked up. Its called "The Ludlow Affair". It stars Robert Beatty.

The Ronald Colman Bulldog Drummonds are not PD in the US. "Bulldog Drummond" (1929) was renewed R175568 and "Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back" (1934) was renewed R295058. Strikes Back has also been unavailable for many years due to it being tangled up in other rights issues.

The later US and British films are under copyright also.

13 Lead Soldiers (1947) with Tom Conway [20th Century Fox]
The Challenge (1947) with Tom Conway [20th Century Fox]

are these two still copyrighted, and does this mean they cannot be uploaded here?

I don't know about that but how about the Bulldog Drummond with Ronald Colman(1929) It's on IA but it's incomplete. I'd
like to see the rest of it.

I've got a buddy with a bunch of Bulldog Drummond movies, but not Bulldog Drummond (1929) or Bulldog Drummond Strikes Back (1934), which starred Ronald Colman.

Besides Arrest Bulldog Drummond (1939), I can get Bulldog Drummond's Bride (1939) and Bulldog Drummond at Bay (1947), which aren't posted here at IA.

It'd be good to know if they're copyright-free, too.

As I said, IA has Bulldog Drummond (1929) but only the first 41 minutes of it. Twainsborough, you might know what happened to the rest of it.
